THE CIRCLE 




1937 



PUBLISHED BY THE SENIOR CLASS 

ABBOT ACADEMY 

ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS 



DEDICATION 

To Miss Hearsey the Class of Thirty-seven takes pride and 
pleasure in dedicating its Yearbook. She has been more than our 
principal and counselor, she has been our friend. This has been her 
first year at Abbot but in so short a time she has won the loyalty 
and affection of the whole school. We, the Class of Thirty-seven, are 
proud to be Miss Hearsey's first graduating class. We earnestly hope 
that we may ever be a credit to her.

SENIORS 



Class Song 



Thirty-seven's marching 

Onward, always marching 

Striving for the best we know; 

We'll be loyal ever 

To our school, we'll never 

Be unfaithful or untrue. 

Raise our banner green up to the sky, 

Never let its meaning to us die; 

Abbot, when we leave you 

We will not forget you, 

Thirty-seven's marching on. 



^ree S°ng 



HZlng Song 



Each branch is a day from a bygone year, 
Each leaf is an hour we spent, 
Each bud a dream or a murmured prayer 
The whispering breeze once sent. 



May this lovely golden ring 
Lasting strength and wisdom bring, 
Purpose steadfast, vision clear, 
To all of us who gather here. 



The roots of this tree are faith and love, 
That will cling though our paths may part, 
Its greenest tip is the shining goal 
We seek with a yearning heart. 



Kindness, patience, love of life, 
Courage, too, to face the strife, 
Loyalty that we may be, 
Oh Abbot, ever true to thee. 



The whole is a tribute to our youth, 
May it face all the storms and strife 
With courage high and with head unbowed. 
As we too would face our life.

1 93 7 — Qlass history — 1937 

Prep: — 

When I entered this fair school in September of the year 1932, I was filled with 
awe and, without a doubt, bad manners and was straightway reproved by the noble 
Seniors with sharp words and glances when I failed to rise immediately on the en- 
trance of certain upright and illustrious members of the faculty. Before the year was 
over I learned many things. Among these was the fact that when a member of the 
above-mentioned faculty intrudes upon an unauthorized student convention choose 
the sub-bed dash rather than a closet-burrow because the hangers rattle. Also was 
taken down three and one-half notches by a Senior when I spoke downtown to Bill 
Jones, a boy from home, who is going to P. A. 

Junior: — 

Was so eager to get back that I arrived a day early and was much disgruntled to 
find nothing but new girls. However, I lowered myself to a degree where-in I could 
see them and condescended to point out the way to Lowe's. Was very discouraged to 
find that my feet are rather large for ballroom dancing inasmuch as they always 
arrive at and cover the same space that my partner's arrive at and cover a moment 
later. Have ruined my white shoes thereat. 

Junior-Mid: — 

Was given a new girl to write to this summer. Wrote her many lurid tales of life 
at school after which she refused to come. Helped write the class song and pick out the 
class colors. Later was greatly gratified, etc. to be elected to a society. (Have learned 
that the use of a society is to collect dues to pay for the food we eat at meetings.) Also 
have decided that I must be quite a gorgeous creature because Bill Jones is calling 
regularly. Tried to learn to like coffee at dinner and lay awake all night thereafter. 

Senior-Mid: — 

Felt even more superior to new girls who entered our class this year. Discovered 
to my surprise that they were only human while attending the picnic at Prospect. (By 
the way, it rained.) Was pleased at the thought of wearing new class sweater and was 
not disappointed. Was slightly irked when I learned how much I had to pay for the 
Prom but recovered when I reflected on the thought of getting in free next year. 
Rained on both the day of our tea-dance and of our plays. Greatly embarrassed my- 
self by two things. 1). Toasting the wrong person at the class banquet. 2). Sitting 
through the Senior porch when we were given the Parlor. Went to P. A. Prom with 
Bill and then struggled valiantly with two unmentionable College Boards. 

Senior: — 

Began to feel like a Senior when I observed Preps' frightened looks and awed 
(odd) glances. Rained on the day of the picnic so we opened Baronial. Intervale was 
wonderful despite a rainstorm all Sunday. Rained gently on "Berkeley Square." Also 
damp weather for the Prom. Wore my trench-coat over to John-Esther for the ban- 
quet. Was driven to church for Commencement because of rain. Passed my college 

boards!

c&he Class "Will and "Won't 

We, the Senior Class of Abbot Academy, in the year of nineteen hundred and 
thirty-seven, being in sound mind (I said mind) and body (reference — "this too, too 
solid flesh" — Shakespeare) hereby do set down those qualities and articles which, 
being needed by ourselves we refuse to bequeath to anyone: — 

Peden's calm and quietude. 

Todd's tact. (Inherited last year from Tommy Reinhart.) 

Pettingill's brother. 

Cohen's ability to bluff. 

Sawyer's Prom dates. 

Our drag with the Faculty. 

However, knowing as we do, that Abbot would be a dull place without many of 
our endearing qualities we do hereby make, publish, and declare this to be our last 
will and testament: — We leave — 

Our special inner-spring beauty-rest mattresses to the Hotel Bellvue, Intervale. 
Holbrook's neatness to Homestead. 
Prof's puns to anyone who'll take them. 
Our boxes upon boxes of A.B.D. pills to Jane Currier. 
Senior rooms to the Senior-mids. (Nice of us, isn't it?) 
Our high aspirations to Miss Butterfield. 
Our lost pounds to Miss Carpenter. 
Our ability to manoeuvre Chickie to the Senior-Mids. 
Our diets to Christine Robinson. 

Our correspondence (not correspondents) to Marie Appleby. 
Our goldfish to Crass. 

Our True Story Magazines to the Infirmary. 
The Senior Play and Shakespeare to the Senior-Mids. 
Our acquiescence to the Junior-Mids. 
Our beer jackets to Belle and Winnie. 

Our super-colossal four-star hit, "The Golden Hand," to next year's Entertain- 
ment Committee. 

All un-returned books to the Library. 
All bells to the Physics lab. 
All notebooks to the garbage-collector. 
Our curling irons to Theodore.

(Tune: A Little Bit of Heaven) 

Sure a little bit of heaven 

Fell from out the sky one day, 

And it nestled in New Hampshire 

Not so many miles away; 

And when the angels found it 

Sure it looked so sweet and fair, 

They said, "Suppose we leave it, 

For it looks so peaceful there." 

So they sprinkled it with sunshine 

Just to make the pine trees grow, 

They're the finest ones that can be found 

No matter where you go. 

And they placed the mountains round it 

Just to keep away the gale, 

And when they had it finished, 

Sure they called it Intervale!

SenioT'c^fCid Song 

The class of '38 is marching on 

And ever singing as we go along 

To future life that waits us every One, 

A life that should be worthy when it is done. 

So helped and aided by this school of ours 

To strengthen all our talents and our powers, 

We bravely face our fortune and our fate. 

We are the Class of '38.

Father, I know that all my life 

Is portioned out for me; 
The changes that are sure to come 

: I do not fear to see : 
But I ask thee for a present mind 

Intent on pleasing thee. 

I ask thee for a thoughtful love 

Through constant watching wise, 

To meet the glad with joyful smiles, 
: And to wipe the weeping eyes : 

And a heart at leisure from itself, 
To soothe and sympathize. 

Wherever in the world I am, 

In whatsoe'er estate, 
I have a fellowship of hearts 

: To keep and cultivate; : 
And a work of lowly love to do 

For the Lord on whom I wait. 

So I ask Thee for the daily strength 

To none that ask denied, 
And a mind to blend with outward life 

: While keeping at Thy side; : 
Content to fill a little space 

If Thou be glorified.

Why did I come to Abbot? 

To break the ice 

For a change of atmosphere 

To see the big city 

To see if Yankees are all they are cracked up to be 

To be in Choir 

To ski 

To learn French 

Too much radio 

To see if the life of the school was free and happy 

To eat an Abbot Special 

To take Morton Street 

To grow up and to meet the "cultured easterners" 

Just for the Dickens of it 
See if I could fill my sister's shoes 

Mere convenience 

For the ride every day 

It was "Abbotized" in all the magazines 

Process of elimination 

To develop my voice and meet someone my own size 

To stir things up 

To make roller skates for backward children 



^Ambition 



Each day we go to History class 

To learn if we can that subject pass. 

With trembling lips and shaking knees 

We desperat'ly try Miss Bean to please. 

With bated breath and pallid face 

We see the red pencil's rapid pace. 

We always find on every test, 

"Be concise. Few words are best!" 

In every class it's just the same. 

We strive to pass not just toward fame. 

Ah, diploma, for thee we strive. 

For thee we labor as bees in a hive. 

We ever long to grip thee tight 

And feast our eyes on the glorious sight. 

For then we'll know that we have pass'd 

And softly murmur, "Ah! At last!"

cAbbot (fJtierrj'Qo- (r R^urid 

Once upon a time three men lived in a little house in a Wood at the top of a Hill. 
One was a Fisher, another a Hunter, and the last a Woodman. The house was across 
two Brooks and a Pond. The country had a similar appearance to England (or was it 
Poland). 

One night the Hunter came home very angry. "Godfrey!" said he. "I'm Tuckered 
out. I was down by the brook where the Pierpoints at the other side, thinking that 
I'd Rutherford than swim, when along came a Risley bear. I Rose to the occasion 
and took Comstock of him and said, "Duncan any nearer," but he was Cross and 
Russed at me. "Waugh!!" said I, having a Tingley feeling. Then I Ransom and 
jumped a Holbrook. 

"Forsyth, you've had some excitement," said the Fisher, "But Teichert, you are 
Sheldon Harrised. It's your pay for the Jenks you've been up to lately. And you sure 
looked funny Friskin through the woods. A mite Greene, too. 

Joost then there were some Knox on the portals. A Poore girl drooped outside, 
her very legs Bowen with fatigue. 

"Oh, save me! Protect me!" she begged as she was swooning. I am being pur- 
sued by the King's Butler and Baker." And she collapsed in the Hall. 

"H-Evans!" said the Woodman. "Quickly! Inman, Parker in the chair. Maybe 
we Butterfield her pulse." 

"Someone has Craiged her on the Bean," observed the Fisher as he Saundered 
over. "But — AH — here are her mortal enemies the Butler and the Baker." 

Later the Hunter said that he thought the Fisher had been very brave. "I never 
would have thought that he could Rice to such heights. 'Stop!' he said as he drew his 
gun Hancocked it. 'This girl has asked our protection and I can not allow you to dis- 
Thurbur. So Thayer!' and he jumped on the Perrott once. 'It's people like you with 
no Hume-an interest that Burns me up.' 

"And when he started in on them you should have seen them Milleround," 
finished up the Hunter. "Boy, they sure were mad. 'You may be a Freeman now," he 
Bellows. 'But just you wait. I'll teach you a lesson as I've Todd some other people.'" 

When they went back into the house again the girl had not recovered. 

"Isn't she a Darling?" asked the Woodman. 

"She is indeed," replied the Hunter. "I'll go and shoot a Partridge for her din- 
ner." And he went and found one Pecking away at something and shot it through 
Athy. When he got back the girl ate the Hulburd. She then gently hinted that she 
could eat another if they wanted to Kilmer. 

The Woodman said that he could Cutter a tree but that they would not get her 
any more bird because at that time it had Bain against the law for many years. 

Soon the girl went home to her father, the Smith, and all the men who were 
trying to Currier favor. The Hunter, and the Fisher, and the Woodman all fell 
back into their old Abbotts and lived happily ever after.

I can think of numerous things

It's just one of those things 

I was born that way 

Missing things 

Getting away with murder 

It must be something 

Oh, I haven't arrived yet

Good Yearbooks Don't "Just Happen' 

I HEY may vary tremendously in size, design, and cost, 
but all successful yearbooks have one thing in common . . . 
they represent hours of careful planning and painstaking 
workmanship. 

This volume is no exception. The staff has worked long 
and diligently in order to make it an interesting record of 
the class and school. 

It has been our privilege to assist in the publication of the 
book, working in close association with the members of the 
board. We wish to take this opportunity to thank them for 
their co-operation and to congratulate them on the results 
of their labors.
